What we do:

  • Work with the ministerial team to increase the variety of worship in St Bartholomew’s by identifying opportunities for special services;
  • Work collaboratively with individuals or groups to develop special services;
  • Encourage members of the congregation to become involved in the various worship teams;
  • Hold detailed information on the operation and management of the worship teams;
  • Assist the management of all services by working closely with the worship teams;
  • Provide a forum for the worship teams to raise issues to the Leadership Group and ultimately the PCC for resolution;
